How to Change Text Size
Now with this responsive web design, you can easily change the text size to fit your eyesight needs.
If you browse on The Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) Homepage on a desktop computer, a modern web browser will allow you to hold down the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + or - key to increase or decrease the text size, and 0 to go back to the default size.
On a smartphone or a tablet, you can simply pinch open on the screen to zoom in (i.e. to enlarge) and pinch close to zoom out (i.e. to reduce) everything.
You may also change the text size from the menu. Choose from the following web browsers for specific instructions:
On the Page menu, select Zoom, then Larger.
On the View menu, select Zoom, then Zoom In.
Or you may click on the Menu icon and select + or - to make the text size bigger or smaller.
On the View menu, select Text Size, then Largest.
Or you may click on the IE Settings icon, select Zoom, then choose a percentage or click Zoom In.
On the View menu, select Zoom. Then choose a percentage.
On the View menu, select Make Text Bigger.
